Making mosaics with seniors

Mosaic project at a seniors’ residence

We just completed 5 mosaic-making sessions, working with seniors at a long-term care residence. We created the templates, prepared the materials, spread the glue and provided plenty of coaching and instruction along with way. The photo above shows the work they accomplished during the 5 sessions. None of these people had ever done any work like this before.

There were quite a few people who participated and they had a range of physical and cognitive abilities. Some of the participants worked very successfully mostly on their own, while others needed more assistance along the way. The important thing for us was getting quite a few people participating and enjoying the process.

I think they did a great job! Their work is going to be hung up at the long-term care residence for everyone to enjoy. We had a great time working with these folks
